#5 Ways To Stay Focused On Your Goals

We all have goals in life, don’t we? And we would all like to achieve these goals, but there are days in life when we just don’t feel like doing anything. And that’s okay. Just remember you’re gonna have to pick yourself up eventually and move on, because your goals are waiting for you. That might sound easier than it actually is, I totally agree, and that’s why I’ve made a short list below that will help you to stay motivated and focused on your goals.

#1. Make a to-do list 

This always works. When you wake up and feel like doing nothing today, just grab your phone or notebook and start making a to-do list for the day. Just make sure that the order of the tasks doesn’t matter, because that’s gonna make you even more demotivated. This way you can pick anything that’s on the list and accomplish it any time of the day.  Try to get as much done as possible and you’ll be surprised how much you’ve done at the end of the day.

You don’t get what you wish for, you get what you work for.

#2. Go offline! 

One of the reasons you can’t focus could be because you’re easily distracted. What’s the biggest distraction in our lives these days? That’d be social media and you knew it. It’s so tempting to reach out for your phone while you’re “thinking”, just try not doing that for once! You’re unconsciously taking your mind somewhere else, and your focus goes along. Turn off your wifi/ data or just entirely turn off your phone, to make sure you don’t go checking your social media timelines. Maybe try out the Pomodoro-method?

#3. Change your work place/environment 

Are you always working at the same place, in the same environment? That might be another reason you’re not really motivated anymore. Your mind gets used to the environment and it’s not as exciting as it used to be. Try switching to a different environment from time to time. Maybe this cute cafe, a restaurant or the library? You’ll be surprised what it could do to your motivation and inspiration.

#4. Track your progress

There’s no better way to get a confidence-boost than seeing the progress you made. When you’re a blogger, read back old posts and the track the traffic you had on your best days. This will get you motivated to post more in no time (always works for me).

Another way of tracking your progress is checking off the things you already did, e.g. on your to-do list. It will make you feel satisfied and motivated to keep going!

#5. Have a healthy mindset

There’s no way you can stay focused if you don’t have a healthy mindset, but what does this mean? Of course it’s important to exercise regularly and eat healthy, but it’s even more important to make sure your mind is healthy. First of all, life can be stressful sometimes so it’s important to say no sometimes. Also make sure you’re surrounding yourself with positive people, which means: leave all the toxic people behind! You deserve much better and you’ll definitely notice the change.
